2013


Kim Guymon, "Students First!"

Guymon provided the following statement for the 2013 Local Voters' Pamphlet in Snohomish County:[5]

"I am the outsider in this race and a concerned district parent and taxpayer just like you. The public seems to have been largely ignored in recent years by the School Board elected to represent them. I intend to change that by making those who matter the most (students, teachers and families) my top and constant priority.

As I have done for the last 2 years as the founder of the citizen's action group, The Everett School Board Project, I will ask the questions you want asked and lead with you in mind.

As an Everett School Board Director I promise to:

-Lead with the students, teachers and families of the district as my priority

-Seek prudent classroom-focused financial management. Kids First!

-Communicate with the public in the spirit of transparency and respect

-Respect teachers who work tirelessly to prepare our students for success

-Seek innovative educational solutions that engage our 21st century students

-Help create a positive educational environment that pushes Everett Schools to the top.

Visit my website for more information. Please join me and together we can make a difference."

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[8]
